Here is an exerpt from page 135 of the manual that deals with special
character searches.
"Searching for Special Characters

        In the Find text box (ALT+F) in the Find dialog, you can type the
following to search for special characters:

        \t finds horizontal tabs.

        \n finds a new line. A new line exists only at the end of a
paragraph or on a blank line.

        \\ finds backslashes.

        \p finds text at the beginning or end of a page. For example, -\p
would find pages whose last character was a hyphen, and \p- would find pages
whose first character was hyphen. Be aware that searches using this wildcard
may fail due to the presence of headers and footers."

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Format Characters in K1000

I thought since I'm working on a book for Bookshare, that I would ask this
here rather than on the K1000 list.  With features such as rank spelling,
poorly scanned pages and rerecognition, the prospect of editing and fixing
up a kes file, then translating it into rtf for submission is much more
feasible than with an ark file.
I was wondering how to enter characters such as tab, hard return and page
break into the search box.  Apparently the caret method of MSWord isn't the
way.  Is there a list of these somewhere in the docs?  If so, could someone
just point me to it, as I'm not sure where to look.
